I’m DeeDee Scarberry, and I create hand-lettered designs that express truth, hope, and fun. And I’m the founder and owner of She Laughs and Letters!
I am thrilled that anyone who uses our hand-lettered designs knows they are getting a unique piece of art!
Before I created She Laughs and Letters, I taught at a private school. Once we had our daughter, I became a stay-at-home mom. Even though I loved my new role, I knew I wanted to be using my creative gifts and talents as well.

Several years before our daughter was born, my husband and I almost got divorced. We went through this crazy season in our marriage!
From an outsider’s perspective, things looked HOPELESS.
I knew that surrounding myself with written reminders of hope and truth was crucial to me as I prayed and waited for our relationship to be rebuilt.
While my world was falling apart, I clung to those words of truth I had taped all over my walls!
Despite how bad things were, God worked on our hearts and gave us a new love for each other. I am so thankful for restoration, redemption, and new beginnings!
Fast forward to 2016, when I’m home full-time with my daughter.
For the first time, I heard the actual term “hand-lettering” and thought, “Hey! That’s what I’ve been doing with those Bible verses I stuck all over our walls!”
I was concerned about starting a hand-lettering business because I had seen SO many other lettering artists all over Instagram.
I thought, “Why not combine my love for lettering with encouraging words that revive hope and restore peace? And why not make it all pretty and fun to look at?”
I set out to create designs that would remind people of TRUTH, and that were inspiring, encouraging, fun, and beautiful!
Since then, I’ve been able to officially incorporate this business! I’ve had the privilege of designing and selling my own designs through this website and through Etsy.
And I’ve gotten to work with so many wonderful clients such as:
- wedding + event planners
- business owners
- wives, mamas, and women like you!

I’m so thankful I get to continue to surround myself with pretty words of truth, and that I now get to share what has been so encouraging and meaningful to me with all of you!
- I actually do LOVE to laugh!
- My business name was inspired by Proverbs 31:25-
“She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.”
YOU are the reason I do what I do!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
